The Quire, a local choral group, began 16 years ago with 14 members; it has since increased to more than 40, and it aims to continue employing music to bring an eclectic group of people together.
While the group is known as eastern Iowa’s gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transsexual chorus, manager Audra King said, singers are welcome to join regardless of sexual orientation.
“We provide for our community a social outlet that is not an angry protest or a confrontation,” co-director Marlys Boote said.
The Quire will perform composer Morten Lauridsen’s Lux Aeterna and other works at 7 p.m. Saturday at Zion Lutheran Church, 310 N. Johnson St.. Admission is free.
